A Philadelphia-area teenager has been sentenced to 11½ to 23 months in prison in the crash that killed two of his best friends. Nineteen-year-old Kevin Demichiel pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide, involuntary manslaughter, DUI and other offenses. He was charged in the Oct. 18 crash in Chester County that killed Stephen Bare and Troy Thompson. All three lived in the town of Lincoln University.

Prosecutors said they sought a sentence below the range called for in guidelines at the request of the families of the victims. Bare's grandfather, John, told the court that the boys had been friends since they were toddlers and the families wanted to be "as lenient as possible."
